Re:      Infolink Communications Ltd. v. Bell Canada - Infolink Voicecasting Service

Further to the Commission's letter of 23 June 2004 , this is to advise the parties of the revised process setting out the schedule and deadlines for the documents to be filed for the Panel hearing, in the above-noted matter.

No later than 13 August 2004 , the Applicant and the Respondent shall each file their responses to the interrogatories of 11 June 2004 with the Commission at,  and serve them on each other. The Applicant and the Respondent shall also file with the Commission at, and serve on each other, a document consisting of a concise argument stating all the facts and Commission requirements and regulatory decisions relied upon in supporting their respective positions, as well as, in the case of the Applicant, a concise statement of the relief sought, no later than 13 August 2004. This document shall be no longer than 10 pages in length. The parties shall file, as an attachment, a copy of all written material upon which they rely, except material already filed on this record, Commission determinations, tariffs, tariff filings and any other similar documentation usually before the Commission in the normal course of business. A copy of the submission should also be forwarded to Paul Godin, at .

Where a party designates information filed with the Commission as confidential, it must provide the reasons for its claim for confidentiality at the time it files the information with the Commission. If it chooses to do so, the other party (the requesting party) has two days to make representations to the Commission, clearly stating why it considers that the disclosure of the information filed in confidence is in the public interest, serving a copy on the party claiming confidentiality. The party claiming confidentiality will have two days to file a reply, serving a copy on the requesting party.

The hearing will be held on 24 September 2004, in Salon Réal Therrien on the 7 th floor of the Central Building, Terrasses de la Chaudière, 1 Promenade du Portage, Gatineau, Quebec.

At the beginning of the hearing, the Applicant and the Respondent will be accorded the opportunity to briefly address the Panel, 10 minutes maximum.   The parties will then be questioned by the Commission and each other. The Applicant and the Respondent will be accorded the opportunity to briefly address the panel at the conclusion of the hearing.

The parties are required to bring with them all relevant documentation and knowledgeable personnel. An adverse inference may be drawn, if appropriate, from the failure of a party to bring all relevant documentation and knowledgeable personnel to the oral hearing.

The parties will be provided with an agenda for the hearing by 21 September 2004 and are required to provide to Ms. Marielle Giroux-Girard, at , and serve on each other , at least 10 days prior to the panel hearing, the name(s) of the person(s) who will be attending the hearing and their area of expertise.  

Parties may contact Mr. Stephen Millington at (819) 953-0632, or at , if they require additional information regarding the hearing.

Verbatim transcripts of the hearing will be kept and posted on the Commission's web site.

Where a document is to be filed or served by a specific date, the document must be actually received, and not merely sent, by that date.

Yours sincerely,


Paul Godin

Director - Competition Implementation and Technology
